Democratic People's Party (Turkish: Demokratik Halk Partisi, DEHAP) was a Kurdish nationalist[1] political party in Turkey. DEHAP was founded 24 October 1997. It was the continuation of the People's Democracy Party (HADEP), which was banned in March 2003 by the Constitutional Court on the grounds that it supported the Kurdistan Workers Party.[2]

At its last legislative elections in November 2002, the party won 6.2% of the popular vote, thus not reaching the 10% threshold for gaining representation in the Grand National Assembly of Turkey.

On 17 August 2005 DEHAP announced its merger with the Democratic Society Movement (DTH) founded by Leyla Zana to form Democratic Society Party (DTP).[3]
